I dwell in a world
of Cheerios, Spider Man, & Dora.
of toys on the floor.
of Legos and Wii.
of laundry & toddler tea parties…
The Other Man dwells
in a world
of Politics, fine restaurants.
of Minor Celebrity & bars until 2…
of fun, travel, nice clothes, & zero responsibility.
It sure seems like you’ve traded up.
I definitely can’t compete.
You’re right my identity comes from home.
No, I’m not exciting at all.
But I love you, for real.
I made a covenant before God with you.
I meant that whole better / worse thing.
I meant that whole sickness / health thing.
I will wait forever… til death.
I know you say you’ll never come back.
My God hates divorce.
My God loves you more than I do.
My God is bigger than your heartache.
My God is bigger than my failings.
My God will move this mountain!
Saul had free will.
So did Jonah.
So I will pray for your Damascus Road.
So I will stand and grow in him.
He will bring you home.
